CrewCare announce details of 2022 Roady4Roadies events

Roadies … they are the unsung heroes that make the magic happen at the live music events we all love. Often out of sight and out of mind, live music crew are the ones that “make our dreams come true”!
 
Don’t just take it from us, Jimmy Barnes knows a thing or two about crew … 

Australian music crew number over 22,500 and COVID has seen ALL of them without work these past 2 years.  There has been little support for them, other than the extraordinary efforts of Support Act, who have helped thousands in need through their darkest times.
 
Many crew have been forced to leave the industry they love, many others simply cannot survive.
 
Roady4Roadies is a national event organised by CrewCare to raise greater awareness of the critical roles they play, with all funds going directly to Support Act's ‘Crew’ Fund.
 
This year, Roady4Roadies events will take place in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart on Sunday, 1 May 2022, and Brisbane, Sydney, Darwin and Newcastle on Saturday, 7 May 2022.

Tickets to all events are on sale NOW from Moshtix.
 
Each event kicks off with a leisurely, neighbourhood walk followed by family activities and live entertainment. Tickets are just $20 and go a long way to helping those most in need.
 
CrewCare, a charity dedicated to the welfare of crew, is asking everyone who loves, and lives, live music to get involved to meet your ‘Roadies’ and enjoy the day, whilst assisting an important but generally overlooked and forgotten sector of the live music industry.

Peter Darwin
Freelance Site Manager
The pandemic has seen the loss of at least 8 stadium events in Adelaide. Each of these events has meant the loss of 450 production crew roles, 600 stadium staff roles and more than 250 subcontractor roles at a minimum of 1 week’s equivalent work. Multiply that by 5 major cities and that is 20500 crew who lost 2 month’s work each year since 2020 at minimum. These are just the stadium events let alone the 52 plus entertainment centre shows … The industry is very, very damaged.
Jerry Reinhardt
General Manager, Concert & Corporate Productions WA
The pandemic has affected all Australians in varying degrees over the last two years. However, the entertainment industry has been disproportionally adversely affected. Each stadium event cancelled reverberates through hundreds of livelihoods with devastating consequences. The entertainment and events industry here in Western Australia has been seriously damaged. Our company alone has had over 500 shows cancelled across multiple venues due to restrictions imposed. Millions of dollars in revenue have been lost. These cancellations have direct and severe consequences on the financial and mental health of thousands of people in our industry.
Mark 'Trogg' Svendsen
Director, Gig Power
The effect of COVID-19 on Gig Power and its staff has been profound. For 20 months, turnover dropped by 95% and the expected results where devastating, We lost more than 80% of our casual staff. Who could blame them! For Gig Power, government assistance all but ended with JobKeeper. Unfortunately, this meant that we became completely incapable of supporting our people. Our staff are good people who are dedicated and love the work they do and they all deserved better, much better. In Victoria, the work is just starting to come back and we are struggling to find people. With only 100 staff on our books, those still with us are now flat out. We hope to bring new people in and lure some of our older staff back, but it will be a long road to recovery for Gig Power and the people who work with us.

Details of Ambassadors and entertainment for each event will be announced shortly.  Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for updated artist and crew testimonials.
 
So please, Support the crew who make our dreams come true!

Crowded House were awarded Best Adult Contemporary Album for Dreamers Are Waiting at the 2021 ARIA Awards in November last year, and have been nominated for Best Record at the Sailor Jerry Rolling Stone Awards 2022, which will be held in Sydney on March 30.

Special guest in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney is acclaimed rock band Middle Kids, fresh from picking up the 2021 ARIA Award for Best Rock Album for ‘Today We’re The Greatest’. Championed back in 2016 by Elton John on his Beats 1 radio show for their mesmerising debut single ‘Edge of Town’, the band delivered a cover of ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’ for triple j’s Like A Version. Their debut album ‘Lost Friends’ won the prestigious J Award for Australian Album of the Year, and they achieved a top 5 ARIA Chart result for ‘Today We’re The Greatest’ earlier this year.

At Centennial Vineyards’ A Day On The Green, Crowded House will be joined by special guests, The Teskey Brothers, whilst at Mt Duneed Estate, Angus & Julia Stone and The Waifs join the lineup and Bimbadgen will welcome Courtney Barnett and The Waifs.

Crowded House unveiled a new lineup last year, featuring founding members Neil Finn and Nick Seymour, along with producer and keyboardist Mitchell Froom, guitarist and singer Liam Finn and drummer Elroy Finn.

They released their seventh studio album Dreamers Are Waiting on June 4, 2021, featuring the singles Whatever You Want, Playing With Fire, To The Island, Love Isn’t Hard At All, and latest offering, Sweet Tooth. 

Crowded House is a long standing and much-loved vehicle for the song writing talents of Neil Finn. Formed in Melbourne Australia in 1985 out the ashes of New Zealand’s Split Enz by Neil, Paul Hester and Nick Seymour, their eponymous self-titled debut album on Capitol Records went on to global success with the hits Don’t Dream It’s Over and Something So Strong. Those songs and many that followed are still resonating with audiences today, the former in particular being one of the most covered songs of the last 20 years. The band’s first incarnation lasted from 1985 through 1995, produced 4 studio albums and enjoyed much success worldwide, becoming particularly beloved for their freewheeling and interactive live shows. This lineup said Farewell to the World on the steps of the Sydney Opera House in 1996 with a now legendary performance in front of 150,000 people. 

In 2005 following the tragic death of Paul Hester, Neil and Nick felt emotionally compelled to bring Crowded House back, to put some more good history, as they described it, into the story of the band.  Drafting in new drummer Matt Sherrod and with long time touring member Mark Hart they released the album “Time On Earth” to critical acclaim and toured the world. Another album, ‘Intriguer”, was recorded in 2009 and Crowded House was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2016, at the same time reprising its Farewell shows at the Sydney Opera House with 4 nights of stunning performances, the last of which was broadcast nationally on ABC-TV.

Dreamers Are Waiting heralds a further chapter in the Crowded House story. A new generation has grown up and connected with their songs and will now get to experience the band live as they perform legendary anthems from the band’s 35-year career, along with fresh new music.

Among The Restless Release Second Single UNDERGROUND Off Upcoming EP

Among the Restless are proud to announce the release of Underground, is the second single off of their upcoming EP. The song was recorded in early 2020 at Red Engine Recording studios in Brisbane, with acclaimed producer Steve James behind the desk. 

Underground is an uplifting anthem that discusses an array of deep emotions and challenges experienced by the band during the time of their formation. ATRput forward topics surrounding moving away from home, and the daunting aspect of starting anew in a place so far from what you know, the uncertainty that you face, and ultimately how you overcome it.

Underground has been a staple in Among the Restless’ live set, and one that their fans are always eager to hear. Musically the song draws on a feeling of euphoria and nostalgia, providing a lighter indie sensibility, whilst still staying true to their rock roots.

To support the release of UndergroundAmong the Restless continue with their very busy gigging schedule, hosting the official single launch at The Leadbeater Hotel, on the 19th of February.

KISS Final Australian Tour Dates Set For August/September 2022!

With the recent announcement that Western Australia’s borders will remain closed for an indefinite period of time, One World Entertainment and TEG Live have been forced to postpone the Kiss ‘End of the Road’ tour until August / September 2022.  The band is passionate and determined to perform for all their Australian fans – they do not want to leave Perth out of the equation. 

The ‘End Of The Road’ tour, which began in January 2019, is undoubtedly the biggest and best KISS show ever (and that’s saying something), receiving incredible reviews from both diehard KISS fans and the media at sell-out shows across the globe.

Tickets and VIP packages purchased for the March / April 2022 concerts remain valid for the rescheduled dates without need for exchange. Ticket holders will be emailed with their new dates and will not need to take any further action.

Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer are now ready to rock’n’roll all nite with the KISS Army across Australia one last time.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers first visited our shores in 1980 during ‘KISSteria’, kick- starting a deep connection between the band and Aussie fans that has continued to thrive for more than four decades. With countless timeless hits like ‘I Was Made For Loving You’, ‘Detroit Rock City’, ‘Love Gun’, ‘Shout It Out Loud’, ‘Lick It Up’, ‘God Gave Rock’n’Roll To You’ and the knock-em dead anthem that closes every KISS show Rock’n’Roll All Nite’, the KISS legacy has continued to grow, generation after generation. 

Along the way the band has sold more than 100 million albums and through relentless touring has proven again and again why they are the most iconic live show in rock n roll. Come and celebrate the extraordinary career and music of KISS. 

“All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable,” said KISS.

KISS VIP Packages, which may include access to the KISS acoustic set and Q&A, invitation to the KISS Army Captain’s lounge, exclusive merchandise and premium seat locations will be available at all shows. Visit  www.kissonline.com for details.

Event goers can take advantage of Ticketek’s world-leading partnership with Afterpay.

BRAD PAISLEY Adds Brisbane Date to His Australian Tour

Brisbane, we’re heard you! With the one day sell out of the CMC Rocks QLD 2022 Festival, superstar headliner Brad Paisley is adding a special Queensland show at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Monday 26 September 2022.

The Monday night show will give Queensland fans who missed out on festival tickets, the chance to see the country superstar on stage and will give those lucky enough to have grabbed a ticket to CMC Rocks QLD an encore performance from the legendary artist, live in concert, the night after the festival wraps up.

Paisley will be joined by fellow CMC Rocks QLD headliner Morgan Evans for the indoor seated arena show.

Brad Paisley is a global country music superstar who has earned his place in country music history as one of the genre’s most talented and decorated artists. Over the past 21 years, his songwriting and unmatched showmanship have won him numerous awards, including three GRAMMYs, two American Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards and 15 Academy of Country Music Awards among many others.

A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001, Brad has written 21 of his 24 No.1 hits, has amassed over 4.6 billion career streams and in 2008 became the first artist to achieve 10 consecutive Billboard Country Airplay No.1 singles. His 2017 album ‘Love and War’ which features collaborations with the likes of Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and Timbaland, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. This year saw the release of new music from Brad with ‘City of Music’, an ode to the dreamers who arrive in Nashville hoping to make it big.

“Tonight’s show was a beautiful musical extravaganza! Paisley is a true entertainer! If you have not seen a Brad Paisley concert, do yourself a favour and GO SEE HIM! You won’t be disappointed.”PCN Magazine October 2021

Australian born and bred Morgan Evans has grown to become one of the most exciting artists on the global country music scene right now. Having relocated to Nashville in 2017, Morgan exploded onto the US Billboard Country Airplay chart with ‘Kiss Somebody’ hitting #1 and being certified Gold and achieving Platinum in Australia. ‘Day Drunk’ followed which hit the Top 20 in the US and is certified 2 x Platinum in Australia. Both hit singles feature on Morgan’s album ‘Things That We Drink To’ which reached the Top 10 on the US Billboard Country Album chart and Top 5 in Australia on the ARIA Album chart. Morgan went on to win the ARIA Award for Country Album of the Year in 2019.

Morgan has just released his a new EP ‘The Country And The Coast Side A’ featuring the single ‘Love Is Real’, which has spent six weeks at number 1 on the Australian Country Radio chart. Taste of Country describe ‘Love Is Real’ as “Soaring guitars, a driving beat and sing-able melodies make this tune a legit feel-good jam.”

Slash Ft Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators Announce New Album ‘4’ To Be Released February 11, 2022

A decade and four albums into their career, Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators haven’t been deterred by any obstacles in their path–including a global pandemic. Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have announced today they’ll release their new album titled 4 on February 11, 2022, via Gibson Records, in partnership with Sony Music Australia. 4 is Slash's fifth solo album, and fourth overall with his band featuring Myles Kennedy (Vocals), Brent Fitz (Drums), Todd Kerns (Bass & Vocals) and Frank Sidoris (Guitar & Vocals).

PRE-ORDER 4 HERE

 A vibrant rock album fueled by memorable guitar hooks and compelling melodies, big choruses, and even bigger riffs; 4 builds on the legacy of Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators’ prior work. That sensibility comes through immediately on the opening track and the first single, The River Is Rising. The group has unleashed The River Is Rising. 

Slash describes the creation of the song The River Is RisingThere’s two or three songs on the record that were written during the pandemic; everything else was written before. ‘The River is Rising’ was one of the last songs I wrote before we started pre-production, and because it was so fresh and has a certain groove and energy to it, it was the first thing we really attacked. It’s the newest song on the record, and as for the double-time part, that was something that I came up with and tagged onto the end of the arrangement. Then when we were over at RCA, Dave Cobb suggested we do it right after the breakdown. So, we went straight into the fast part and I just started doing the guitar solo over it. It was one of those things where we were jamming around, trying to fish out the arrangement, and it just happened.” While Myles Kennedy adds, “The lyric ultimately explores how humans can be brainwashed or indoctrinated by some sort of dangerous idea. Once we shot the demo back and forth a few times I personally felt confident that we had the album opener. To me, it’s an important track.”
 
For 4, Slash and the band traveled across the country together to Nashville, TN and recorded the new album at the historic RCA Studio A with producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, John Prine, Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile), revealing a stunning new sound and style all captured live in the studio. Cobb shared the band’s desire to lay down the tracks live in the studio including guitar solos and vocals–a first for the group. The band’s previous albums over the last decade Apocalyptic Love (#2 ARIA Album Chart Debut), World on Fire (#2 ARIA Album Chart Debut) and Living The Dream (#4 ARIA Album Chart Debut) have continued on an upward trajectory all achieving Top 5 ARIA and Billboard charting debuts and reaching the Top 10 on 12 major charts across the globe.To date, the three SMKC albums have now garnered 10 consecutive Top 5 Radio singles, spawned sold out world tours, and have earned SLASH and the band the best critical acclaim of their career with their latest album Living The Dream (2018) singled out by the Los Angeles Times, Classic Rock, Guitar World, Loudwire, LA Weekly and more, as their best songs to date.

The new album 4 has the added history-making distinction of being the first-ever album to be released on the new Gibson Records label which is headquartered in the iconic American instrument brand Gibson’s hometown of Music City, Nashville, TN. In light of the 30-year partnership between Gibson and the GRAMMY Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Slash, it makes sense the new Slash Ft Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators' album 4 will be released via Gibson Records–in partnership with Sony Music Australia.

In another groundbreaking move, Gibson will commemorate Slash Ft Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators' first studio album with Gibson Records, with a first-ever limited–edition Slash Les Paul Standard 4 Album Edition guitar package that will be released on February 11, 2022, the same day as the album release. Only 250 Slash Les Paul Standard 4 Album Edition guitars will be made available for global release on www.gibson.com and at select authorized Gibson dealers, and the unique guitar package also features the new SMKC album 4 on vinyl with an exclusive case inside that houses the vinyl, a 4 album guitar pick tin containing a variety of pick colours (8 count), a signed SMKC band portrait, and a 4 album decal sticker.
